This month's special feature "The AICPA Chair for the New Millennium" is an interview with Robert K. Elliott, who takes office as the Chair of the AICPA this month.
It is altogether fitting and proper that Elliott chairs the Institute into the new millennium--he has been at the center of the thinking and strategy of the AICPA's major initiatives for more than the past decade. Elliott has no "ten-point" program for the 1999/2000 year. His goal is to move the existing programs and initiatives forward, with the Vision Process as the focal point. Elliott believes there are huge opportunities in the marketplace for CPAs as the world shifts to an information economy.
"CPAs are the information people," said Elliott, "and if we can't figure out how to profit from a fundamental change in the economy in our direction, it's only because of a lack of imagination, not a lack of opportunity." *
